The Gladeo League: our work-based learning program

Gladeo League logo



The Gladeo League program is our work-based learning program that trains and mentors college students (or 1 year out of college) who are the first in their family to pursue a career in digital media/design/entertainment. Members of the League participate in Gladeo’s professional activities including content & editorial creation, marketing, graphic design, campus outreach, and social media planning. Through this internship, college students interact with working professionals, start to build relationships in their interested field, build soft skills and expand their portfolio of work so they are ready to enter into the workforce with great contacts and valuable working experience!

Our goal is to provide college students with experience in various fields, especially the ones of their interests. Each team member will have a different experience; we aim to mold their time with the League to their passions, talents, and interests. Through the Gladeo League, interns will be able to harness invaluable experience, develop relationships with colleagues and industry professionals, and most importantly, become a hero for our thousands of users as they pave their path to success.

With student debt at an all-time high and rampant un(der)employment, Gladeo will be a valuable tool and web destination for students seeking to make wise, informed education and career decisions. Become part of The Gladeo League- and help us change the world, one hero at a time.
